Hop on to several poker sites for Easter fun

Gotta Get that Paper, Dog

Spring has sprung and Easter weekend is upon us, but perhaps the best green a poker player will find this weekend won't be the grass outside but at the virtual poker felt.

Several poker sites have specials this weekend in honor of the holiday. Bwin poker started the celebrating early, offering a month-long Easter Basket Bonus.

The Easter Basket Bonus offers extra cash to players who can accumulate a certain amount of player points by 31.


To participate, players at bwin poker just need to log in to their account, put in a special bonus code, and then play poker to accumulate points.

The bonus levels and codes are:

5,000 Easter1

Absolute Poker began its Easter promotion today with a $10,000 Easter Egg Hunt.

Today through Monday, specially marked freerolls, sit-and-go tournaments and multi-table tournaments will be classified as bonus tables at the poker site. Those games will be marked the prefix EGG in the lobby and offer players a chance to win a piece of $10,000.

In addition to the Easter Egg Hunt, Absolute Poker has more than $225,000 in guaranteed tournaments scheduled for the long weekend. That includes the $150,000 Guaranteed Texas Hold'em tournament on Saturday plus a $75,000 guaranteed tournament on Sunday.

Carrying on the Easter egg theme, Nuts Poker is hosting Eggstravaganza tournaments today. They are $250 freerolls that are open to all Nuts Poker players, but entry is limited.

The first tournament starts at 11 a.m. (GMT) and is open to 1,000 players, and the second begins at 7 p.m. (GMT) and will allow 750 players.
